    im getting full bars but data speed is still slow?

    Was getting very fast data speed in vancouver. Then i hope in the car get to metrotown burnaby and the data speed is so slow. Im sitting by the window with full bars. Wondering why the diff in speed from location? I go back to vancouver and things are fine again. This isnt a one time thing....tried it multiple times.

    The tower in Burnaby might be overloaded with users so the data speeds are worse. Just because you have full bars doesn't mean you will have the maximum speeds possible.
